    Jo Nesbo may be best-known for his gritty Nordic crime thrillers, but did you know he's also a most-talented children's author? The Doctor Proctor's Fart Powder series is full of the zest and anarchy of David Walliams and Roald Dahl's most popular novels.

    This collection brings together all four hilarious novels in this bestselling series. The crazy plots revolve around Doctor Proctor - an inventor who dreams of becoming famous. When he creates a super-strength fart powder that can propel people into outer space, he may have just achieved his goal... But he hasn't counted on the ruthless twins Tuis and Trym spoiling his plans. The fart-filled adventure takes in a firework extravaganza, a trip to prison and an escaped anaconda!

    The other books in the series are equally delightfully absurd - Doctor Proctor, Nilly and Lisa have to win a football tournament to save the last of Norway's gold (which has been turned into the trophy), the Doctor works on a Time-Travel Bath Bomb and he and his friends discover a TV show is hypnotising everyone who watches it... Wickedly funny stories for children, including reluctant readers, aged 9+.

    Grown-ups have had their turn at running things, and let's face it, they've been rubbish. These books find the kids taking charge and enjoying roles as the prime minister, the President, a secret agent, a billionaire and even Father Christmas!

    Very funny and filled with fantastic illustrations, these charming stories are easy to follow and will appeal to those who enjoy David Walliams or the Treehouse books.
